Using the knowledge that you have acquired during the course, you need to prepare analysis of a specific corporate or specific country, investment fund, derivatives trader/investor or local government involvement in a derivative structured product or situation where significant losses have been suffered. You will need to give analysis of the specific background of the involved parties, provide detailed analysis of the situation, and explain the specifics of the derivative transaction. Note that your analysis and demonstrated understanding of the specific derivatives, not just presenting the numbers, formulas, etc., is the most important aspect of this project. Your paper MUST include your conclusion regarding the situation, and offer an alternative path stating how the situation could have been prevented. It also MUST include a bibliography of information and works cited. The papers should not exceed 15 pages, double spaced. The paper is to be prepared using the APA writing style and guideline for references format.
They must contain a bibliography and all direct quotations and data sources must be properly cited. . The Department uses the APA style as it lends itself well to both reading the paper and understanding references without being cumbersome as some of the other styles are (such as Chicago or MLA). Students can download the student style guide from the American Psychological Association web site or you can purchase the APA style guide from the book store. Papers are to be RESEARCH PAPERS. Tips: 1.The number of Sources is not mandatory, depending on your needs. 2.You can choose topic from this list:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_trading_losses.(It’s also possible not to be on the list.) 3.After you decide on the topic, send it to me first. I need to submit it to the professor.
